Fall Meal Ideas for Cooler Weather
It’s finally almost fall, and with the cooler weather comes new seasonal produce and a whole new way of eating. It’s “sayonara” summer salads, and hello hearty soups, stews and soul-warming meals. Traina Foods encourages home cooks and chefs to get inspired with these autumn meal ideas.
Traina Foods Roast Chicken with Sun Dried Apricot Sauce is really for any time of year, but it’s a perfect hearty yet healthy meal for an autumn evening. With a rotisserie chicken, this meal can be whipped up in a jiffy yet its aromas and presentation are fabulous for entertaining guests. Serve with whipped sweet potatoes or brightly colored sautéed veggies for a complete meal.
Ready for an ooey-gooey cheese delight? Traina Foods Cheesy Orzo Stuffed Peppers are a meal in and of themselves! Packed with a variety of heart-healthy veggies such as zucchini, mushrooms, and onions, not to mention the peppers themselves, these little boats are nutritious and the cheese and orzo promises to fill up empty tummies.
Is there is anything better than freshly baked bread on a crisp fall day? Traina Foods Mediterranean Savory Loaf with Sun Dried Tomatoes takes homemade bread to the next level with sautéed veggies, sun dried tomatoes, feta and Gruyere cheeses. Serve warm (or sliced and grilled) with a little olive oil for dipping as an appetizer, alongside a bowl of soup for a meal, or sliced and made into an Italian sandwich with prosciutto, salami, pepperoni and more.
Speaking of soup, Traina Foods Vegetable Soup with Sun Dried Tomato Breadcrumb Crunch fills the stomach and the soul. Fresh tomatoes, carrots, celery and turnips come together for a vegetarian’s dream come true in a bowl. The breadcrumb crunch on top provides the perfect “bite” so this soup serves as a complete meal.
Regardless of what’s on the menu this fall, Traina Foods invites cooks to think outside the box when it comes to creating recipes that are not only delicious but also healthy and nutritious. Traina Foods dried fruits are so versatile, they can be used in so many ways to liven up even the most traditional dishes.
